Rapid-growth Tech consultancy business looking to replace current Head of Marketing who was leaving at short notice.
The CEO wanted talent with a proven track record in the tech sector and who could manage challenging internal stakeholders across five global business units.
They also needed to be capable of communicating the benefits of complex technology to a non-technical audience, whilst also managing a team of three in a remote-first model.
The business needed candidates from a tech sector background who’d be prepared to work remotely, but with regular trips to London, Europe and the US. The budget and timescales were tight.
